Abstract

In this study, strontium isotopes have been used to constrain the number and possible sources of the ore-forming fluid(s) at the Cave-in-Rock district. Because minerals like fluorite, calcite, and barite have very low Rb/Sr ratios and there is no fractionation in the strontium isotopes during mineral precipitation, the **8**7Sr/**8**6Sr ratios of these hydrothermal minerals should be a measure of the isotopic composition of the mineralizing fluids. Previous work sets a framework for the strontium isotope signatures of deposits that are also thought to be formed by basinal brines.
